Vocal marriage correction

Professionalism comes over the years, but I want to sing well now.

And now the vocalist (this is at best) is already at the microphone, the red recording lamp lights up, and the song is pouring?

Ah, if what was recorded would sound the same as in his own head. In practice, this is far from the case. In some cases, the result is poor. It was noticed that even good vocalists, putting on studio headphones, turn into current black grouses, who can neither hear themselves nor the phonograms (the sound engineer must ensure that the vocalist can hear himself in the headphones!). Simply put, a recorded track is a marriage. The vocal part is sung out of tune. There are overstated or understated notes, and not so much timbre. And with a rhythm like that? Well, in general, it would be necessary to re-sing. Sometimes it turns out to re-write, and sometimes those present in the studio understand that the track that was Continue reading

An enhancer, an exciter and a tube amplifier – what is common?

Exciter (from the English Exciter), also called harmonic exciter (harmonic exciter), psychoacoustic processor (psychoacoustic processor), enhancer (enhancer) and acoustic exciter (aural exciter) – a processing device used for the harmonious synthesis of high-frequency signals using thin harmonic distortion.

This harmonic synthesis is to create higher harmonics based on lower signal frequencies. Typically, noise is not present in different frequency bands in equal amounts, and harmonics obtained from a clean frequency band will be clearer. Less commonly, exciters (enhancers) are used to synthesize low-frequency harmonics in order to simulate deep bass.

Sound processed by an exciter becomes more “pure”, “transparent”, “voluminous”, “warmer” than the original, and also spatially more localized. All these properties are enclosed in quotation marks, since they are perceived by a person subjectively. Also, subjectively, this is similar to adding high frequencies, although an increase in level is barely measurable. Continue reading

About the Philharmonic

Philharmonic (from the Greek. Phileo – I love and harmonia – harmony, “I love harmony”) – in some countries: a music society or an institution that organizes concerts, promotes the development and promotion of musical art.

Philharmonic societies appeared in the cities of Europe and America (Petersburg, Moscow, Berlin, London, New York and others) in the 19th century, and they mainly promoted symphonic music. In the 20th century, in the socialist countries of Europe, philharmonic societies became state organizations – by 1976, there were 136 philharmonic societies in the USSR.

In 1859, A. G. Rubinstein organized the Russian Musical Society in Petersburg. The intensive development of concert activities required the creation of new musical and educational organizations. Continue reading
